  • A good start to Magnum p.i.'s first full season.

    I had thought it was another actress (Pamela Susan Shoop) playing Billy Joe Bob's sister in this episode, based on my memory of when I first tested out my Magnum p.i. season 2 boxset. However when I watched the episode in full a few weeks ago I realised it wasn't her. I wasn't disappointed as the actress who played the role did it very well. And it was clever how they made you think she was dead, because it was very convincing, what happened in the first scene when she was pursued by the car whilst out jogging.

    James Whitmore Jr who played Billy Joe Bob was very good. One minute he was calm and then he was in angry mode as he searched for the people who had killed his sister.

    The end credits of the season premiere were different, in that I think (if I remember right) it was just James Whitmore Jr seen in the clips shown (of him flying TC's helicopter over to the villain's island.

    I wouldn't call this episode a classic but it was a good enough episode.
